Issues ..
MODIFIER
WHICH refers to immediate preceding noun or noun phrase, and here it is actually is supposed to modify th emain clause..
So, either it should be an absolute modifier etc or the modifier should be converted into a clause
THAT cannot start a modifier

By addition of conjunction B, we convert the modifier as a clause..

B

(A) which reflects

which refers to Malabar coast its illogical as the number reflects and not the coast

(B) and that number reflects
only good option out of the rest!
B is correct

(C) which reflect
which can refer back to cities as well as newspapers, which is followed by a plural verb select, therefore cannot refer back to Malabar coast
either-ways the antecedents are illogical

(E) that reflects
that is vague as we don't know what "that" refers to
